Dots and Stripes for Jennie

31 Jul

Jennie's cake

The request for this cake was stripes or dots and to be colorful. So I did it all. After all this was for Jennie’s 15th birthday party. I baked a 11×15 yellow butter sheet cake (her favorite) and iced it in vanilla buttercream. All  design work is piped buttercream. The flowers are cut from fondant.

                  HAPPY BIRTHDAY JENNIE!


3 Tier Square Wedding Cake

24 Jul

Dasen/Rush Cake

Seems squares are very popular this year. This couple was very easy to please not only with the flavor (yellow butter cake with vanilla/almond frosting) but with the design as well.  They decided to have a different look for each tier, dots, swirls & stripes. The white roses and the bright blue flowers added the finishing touch and were provided by Maggie’s Farm.

I also received a very nice phone call from the Mother of the bride today telling me how much she loved the cake, not only was it pretty but was so delicious. That’s the kind of phone call you always want to get.

A Special Thank You Cake

Mary's Thank You Cake

This was a  cake to recognize a  special ladies service to her community. The flavor was chocolate (her favorite) with vanilla buttercream frosting.  All the flowers were buttercream.

This was another fun cake to decorate. I like all the shocking bright colors of lime green, orange and royal blue together. Flavors were yellow butter cake with vanilla buttercream. The stars, dots and monogram were formed from fondant, the rest was piped buttercream.

More Cupcakes

bridal shower

Since this is the bridal season, I have had lots of orders for cupcakes. They are easy to serve for bridal showers. The flavor of these, yellow butter cake with vanilla buttercream. The flowers are buttercream in shades of pink.

Note: The divider in the box to hold the cupcakes was made of wood by my son. Works great to keep them from sliding around.
